There are a few films sat right at the top of my list of 'need to watch very soon', I won't tell you them now, but as I snuggled up with a cup of tea and two kittens, very sleepy, most seemed either too long or too complicated for me at that time. I actually couldn't remember anything I'd read about Kill Your Darlings so that's why it was chosen!
This is no reflection of the quality of the film at all, but I fell asleep half way through. It's an odd film, but definitely not boring. My point being I watched this in two halves in the end.
Now that I've seen the film in full, I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It was certainly interesting, I wasn't bored at all, but that might have been because I was trying so hard to understand it. I now understand after doing a little digging that this is a film based on a true story, and now feel a little silly as I sit typing this, reading the tag line on the movie poster right above me!
The romance between Allen and Lucien was really believable and also very sad, I really empathised with Dane's character and he is most definitely an actor to watch out for. He reminds me of a young Leonardo DiCaprio in more ways than one.
If you've been thinking about giving this film a try, watch the trailer and I'll leave you to make your own mind up. I don't think I could sell this to you, but I wouldn't discourage anyone either.
